These findings seem to suggest that CAPM may be wrong. While some studies raise doubts about CAPM's validity, the model is still widely used in the investment community. Although it is difficult to predict from beta how individual stocks might react to particular movements, investors can probably safely deduce that a portfolio of high-beta stocks will move more than the market in either direction, and a portfolio of low-beta stocks will move less than the market.
This is important for investors, especially fund managers , because they may be unwilling to or prevented from holding cash if they feel that the market is likely to fall.
If so, they can hold low-beta stocks instead. Investors can tailor a portfolio to their specific risk-return requirements, aiming to hold securities with betas in excess of 1 while the market is rising, and securities with betas of less than 1 when the market is falling.
Not surprisingly, CAPM contributed to the rise in the use of indexing —assembling a portfolio of shares to mimic a particular market or asset class—by risk-averse investors. This is largely due to CAPM's message that it is only possible to earn higher returns than those of the market as a whole by taking on higher risk beta.
The Bottom Line The capital asset pricing model is by no means a perfect theory. But the spirit of CAPM is correct.
It provides a useful measure that helps investors determine what return they deserve on an investment, in exchange for putting their money at risk on it. ISBN Published by Prentice Hall, Used Condition: Good Soft cover. Save for Later.

He considered market index while analyzing the portfolio. He simplified the amount and type of input data required to perform portfolio analysis. He made the numerous and complex computations easy which were essential to attain the optimal portfolio. He developed the Single Index Model to make these computations easy and construct an optimal portfolio. Till today, fund managers use this model in portfolio analysis and construction.
Over the past years, the BSE has facilitated the growth of the Indian corporate sector by providing it an efficient capital-raising platform. It provides an efficient and transparent market for trading in equity, debt instruments, derivatives, mutual funds More than companies are listed on BSE making it world's No.
As on 9th May the total turnover of the index Vol. Bearing these in mind, the present study was undertaken to facilitate effective decision making by the investors. He also faces dilemma while deciding about the proportion of investment to be made in each security. This helps the investor to find a portfolio that best suits his needs. The present study is undertaken to prove that by applying this model an individual can construct a portfolio with maximum return for a given level of risk.
The hurdle that exists is that the investor has a problem of deciding which securities to hold and how much to invest in each of them. Though Markowitz Model enables an investor to arrive at an optimal portfolio, the Single index model is helpful in avoiding the difficulty of data input and time cost consideration.
The investors prefer to invest in a group of securities which is known as a portfolio in order to diversify the risk. There are different investment avenues for investors to invest. While some investment avenues involve huge risk others may be either less risky or risk less avenues.
Therefore, it is essential to educate the investor about the investment alternatives and the risk and return from those investments. The study is based on secondary source and the data required for this study was obtained from the website www.
Fifteen Vol. The steps followed are i.
Estimate the return on stock. Those securities which have value of Ci more or equal to cut off point will be selected in optimum portfolio. The proportion for each selected securities will be found by using the following formula Vol.
The study uses yearly prices instead of monthly data 2. Only fifteen companies have been selected for conducting this study. The main aim of this study is to find out the optimum portfolio from the selected companies in three major sectors like power sector, shipping sector and textile sector. From each sector six companies have been selected and so a total of eighteen companies are selected as samples.
The companies with the largest market capitalization in each sector have been selected. Data for five financial years were used for constructing the portfolio; i. All calculations have been done using MS Excel. From the analysis it was found that only five companies were included in the portfolio constructed out of the eighteen companies. The author assumed that there is a positive relationship between the banked and individual stocks.
The data is based on secondary source for the period from 1st April to 31st march It was found that Vol.
Dileep and Rao, Kesava studied the applicability and utility of the Single Index Model in the Indian context and also evaluated the performance of the portfolio thus constructed in terms of its rate of return.
A sample of thirty companies belonging to various sectors was chosen for study and the data required for this study was collected from secondary sources. It was found that only four companies were included in portfolio construction.
April to March In order to determine the daily market return, the BSE Sensex was taken as the market performance index. After formulating the cut-off rate, those securities whose Ci values greater than the cut-off point were selected. Then to arrive at the optimal portfolio the proportion of investment in each of the selected securities in the optimal portfolio was computed on the basis of beta value, unsystematic risk, excess return to beta ratio and the cut off rate of the security concerned.
Different statistical tools and techniques charts and diagrams have been used for the purpose of analysis and interpretation of data. From the samples of twenty one securities an optimum portfolio was constructed using ten securities. The main objective of the study is to analyze the performance of securities based on aggregate weighted average of EPS, Sales and net profit. The secondary data has been collected from websites. The yearly data for five years has been taken.
The securities which top on aggregate weighted average have been selected for the constructing portfolio. For analyzing the securities various statistical tools like weighted average, simple average, standard deviation, regression analysis, systematic and unsystematic risk are used.
Out of Vol. The study reveals that stock prices and market index move in the same direction. The study has been conducted on individual securities listed in Dhaka Stock Exchange, where short sales are not allowed.
The monthly closing prices of one hundred and sixty four companies listed in Dhaka Stock Exchange and share price index for the period of July to June have been considered in this study.
